CAS Project: 80s Quiz Night

Thursday, February 14, 2019



On Sunday 21 October 2018 Miah, Megan, Alice and I held an 80’s Quiz Night to raise funds for the drought.

We invited our friends, families and IB teachers. It was a long planning process as we had to make and send out invitations, find sponsors, write a quiz and work out the quantity of ingredients to buy in order to make 23 pizzas.

At times it was a stressful process but in the end it came together really well. Around 45 people attended and each was served with their pizza order which was included in the $15 entry.

We had 8 quiz rounds with topics ranging from 80’s Music to History, as well as two extra rounds of guess the celebrity and flags. They were quite challenging, thanks to the quiz writers Alice and Megan. We also had a raffle, as we were inundated with prizes thanks to Miah, who was in charge of sponsors.

All in all the night was super successful and we raised $850 dollars which went to Buy a Bale, in support of farmers struggling in the drought.

We would especially like to thank Miah’s Mum, Corina, for allowing us to have the event at her beautiful winery, Oliver’s Taranaga.
